Had the amazing honour to try out some amazing @underarmourca gear! In these shots I’m wearing the UA Gore Windstopper fitted jacket and compression pants. The shirt is the Perpetual run 3/4 sleeve and the shoes are the UA HOVR CGR NC. I love love loved all this gear!!! Big thanks to Rebecca at @underarmourca and @saulalewis & Graziella Mitri from @paradigm_pr for giving me the opportunity show & speak to you about this gear!
Jacket 💥The gore windstopper material is amazing! Absolutely no wind gets through this material especially when running into the wind! It’s has perfectly placed pockets with zippers that are covered to resist water. It has shoulder cutouts to help it move with you and reflective striping to stay visible!
Pants 💥 the pants are made of the same material as the jacket that blocks all the wind. It has vented material strategically sewn in to help your skin breath and has zips at the ankles to help get your feet through. These are compression pants so make sure you try them on the ensure the right fit for you!
Shoes 💥 The first thing I noticed that was really cool was that you’re running on the @michelin man! Check out the soles, they are #Michelin rubber! They are have these cool ankle sleeves on them that I’ve never really run with before but love them! I will caution however that it’s not comfortable to use really low cut socks because the sleeves rub on your ankles and could cause discomfort or blisters so please use a good high compression sock ( I used my @teamtiux & as usual had no issues ). They lace up great around my foot and stayed tied!
Shirt 💥 The perpetual run too is amazing! Love the 3/4 length sleeve for this cooler weather and it has graduated venting holes on the back of the shirt for temperature control and moisture wicking.
One thing I did wear this time that I think is a game changer for me ( and this is just for the boys out there) is @saxxunderwear. These things are awesome and I’m going to start slowly switching over to them and run wth them all the time now!
Hope you found this helpful!
What is your fav gear?
I had company for my first long run today! 🏃🏻♀️ Grateful for Saturday mornings spent in bed with a book, sunny fall days in Germany with a patient Manfriend and slobbery dog, and the fact that I didn't have to run more than a mile and a half to start. 🙈 #familyFitness#runHappy#tiuxsocks#jeffgallowaytraining

If I had run all the miles, I could be eating all the donuts right now. It’s true. I have a shirt that proves it.
I was not there mentally today. Changing my schedule for work meant my sleep was off last night. Woke up to more WiFi issues in my hotel room. I have a paper I need to write that I’ve barely started 😳. The hotel gym was locked so I had to ask the front desk to open it before hours. The weird security guard hung out in the gym with me which caused me to constantly check over my shoulder (go away, you’re creeping me out). I couldn’t remember what happened in Making a Murderer so I was all disconnected with Season 2 and couldn’t zone out.
Usually when I have a poor mood, running is just the cure. Today I couldn’t snap out of it. I’ll finish my miles after work today and hopefully find my happy place (read: chocolate) sometime between now and then.

So, @teamtiux sent me these here compression socks to try out and review. I wore them for a couple of hours after a pretty tough track workout, and again on an easy run the following day.
I gotta say, I’m not normally a fan of compression socks. I prefer a sleeve because I’m kind of picky about the socks I run in, but they were actually quite comfy. Lots of support in the arch and tight enough to be effective, but not so tight they were uncomfortable.
Would I recommend them to a friend? You bet. Do they have lots of cute styles to choose from? Not so much, but they’re a growing business and I have no doubt they’ll be adding to their selection in the very near future. As for me, I prefer the solid colors over the busy patterns anyway, so, it works for me! Have a great weekend, y’all! 😘
